Above photo, courtesy of PHEYES.com and taken from Shanghaiist show an under construction skyscraper fully ablaze and doomed to burn out. Fire safety at a construction site is of high importance (as can be seen above) and requires as a minimum
- the adequate distribution of fire extinguishers
- a working fire life safety system if construction is happening in an existing space
- proper means and methods of executing works
- educated workers with a degree of awareness of their works and safety in general
Especially the last part is of highest importance, as more often than not, a carelessly discarded cigarette bum can lead to a fire.
